Do these 2 application work to gather?

I am programing excel, word, Access, and I want to start w/ Autocad 2004.

Are they compatable? I am losing ground with VBA within each application.

Anouther question is, is there an online manual to the autocad commands?

For instance
pt1 = getpoint()
pt2 = getpoiint()
L=line(pt1, pt2)

ect.

You can use the ActiveX APIl. You will need to add the references from the COM tab of the Add Reference dialog. You can use the help in AutoCAD but remember that it is written for VBA and .NET has differences with variables eg VBA Integer = .NET Short or Int16. If you upgrade to 2006 you will have a .NET API you can use.
